National Moth Week - Moth Day July 24, 2015

25 visitors turned out for our first Moth Day event. Thanks for coming! While a great time was had, very few moths showed up. One reason is that our Alaska moths are mostly still in the caterpillar and pupae stage in July! But we did our best to attract them and our intrepid group found a few. We will try again in September when moths are more prevalent! Stay tuned for Moth Day part II! Thank you to Kath Daly for telling us about National Moth Week and for leading this program!

Checking our nets...


Anything down there?


Not a moth... lots of these ladybird beetles were spotted eating aphids...


Also not a moth... Wasp eating sweet droppings from the aforementioned aphids.


Success! A few moths were found, including this pupa of some type of Birch Leaf-roller Moth.
